Windows vista after shutting down does not completely shut off

Windows vista after shutting down does not completely shut off the computer.
The screen states "Shutting down"
Have tried "Diagnostic Startup" this stops all none windows programs loading up.

PC still goes into the state "Shutting down"

Don't want to do a windows re-install

You don't have to reinstall windows. It's moreover a software issue. This happens when a software that is running is having trouble being shut down, even forced to shut down by windows. Reinstalling the software is usually a quick and easy fix. Finding out which software it is that is causing this is a bit more difficult. Best way to troubleshoot that I can think of off the top of my head is to simply start the computer, and see what is running in the processes tab of the task manager. A lot of times the issue has been yahoo messenger or some other messenger for some random reason. Before shutting down close all of your running programs and give it a shot again. If it shuts down fine then it is a software that is causing it and no need to reinstall windows. Major overkill to fix something like this.

I have seen this in the past numerous times. It is normally caused by a bad update. Do a system restore and it should fix the issue.

"Description:

That right there tells you what the issue is. As they said look when your last update was and do a system restore to before that point and it should be fine. Update just didn't go through properly.
